marathon bombing, i want to kbri in nbc news chief white house correspondent and political director. chuck todd, chuck, i thought it was a very moving, moving speech from the president and very personal. coming at a very particularly difficult time. look at the nation reeling from a tragedy and the uncertainty from what happened in and around bost thn week. >> alex, think about what the president has had to deal with in the last 24 hours, both politically, in his own political fights. we heard yesterday in the range of emotions that the president has been dealing with. where he was obviously upset and angry about the gun vote. on his way to boston to deliver that speech, he's getting bring briefed about what happened in west texas. a reminder that this job isn't made for everyone. but the speech itself when you think about how important it is for the city of boston, his speech -- every speech was more moving than the next. i thought deval patrick was outstanding and the president really gave the type of thing that i think people wanted to hear. feel the healing. for a lot of bostonians, wa

watching you this morning, throughout the morning and you and david and chuck. and all of our team down there. and just for anyone who loves the american presidency, loves american history. this was so extraordinary. you saw jimmy carter getting up and finding something really positive to say about george w. bush. about sudan, about pepfar. bill clinton, the gracefulness of all of these other leaders. what was your impression being there? >> i think somebody was passing out the sodium pentothal the past couple of days. you had george w. bush the former president say, you know dick cheney saying i don't see him much. that was a firestorm. that was a great get for him and from the former first lady, we've had enough bushes, that's like eisenhower saying about nixon, give me two weeks and i'll think something he's helped me with. that was an undercut. and wonderfully bill saying the eternal effort of former presidents to rewrite history. what an absolute statement about what this is all about. all of these lee brieres are that very thing to try to write history your way. i thought it was a
house correspondent chuck todd is traveling with the president. he is in texas. before i get more information on what the white house is saying, i want to play the president's remarks, august 20th, 2012, when this red line was first referenced by the president. let's play it. >> we have been very clear to the outside regime but also to other players on the ground that a red line for us is, we start saying a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. that would change my calculus. that would change my equation. >> of course, august 20, 2012. what is the administration saying right now, chuck? >> reporter: well, they're a fine line here. what you heard secretary hagel say is the intelligence community believes that chemical weapons have been used by the assad regime. a senior official briefed a bunch of reportaries few minutes ago and what he is saying is we need more evidence to confirm the intelligence community's assessment. the senior official made reference to the infamous wmd information back in the day in saying that's why you have to confirm this. the a

on comprehensive immigration reform. >> michael: he said continuing progress but nothing tangible get. chuck schumer said he thinks we could see a deal as early as next week. >> with the agreement between business and labor, every major policy issue has been resolved on the gang of eight. we have all agreed that we're not going to come to a final agreement until we see draft legislative language and agree on that. we have drafted some of it already. the rest will be drafted this week. >> michael: how tough is a gang if chuck schumer is in it? some republicans said they wouldn't agree to anything until the boarder is absolutely secure. >> people still get threw, but we have a reasonable expectation of catching them. we don't need a saled border we need a secure border. >> michael: where there is a flicker of bipartisan agreement there is a republican ready to douse it with a big budget of cold water. and in this case marco rubio is holding the bucket of water in his case. he urged the senate to slow the whole thing down by just having hearings rather than a vote. and fin
a potential game-changer. our political director, chief white house correspondent chuck todd is with us for more on this. chuck, what to do about it now in a nation not looking for yet another foreign conflict? >> reporter: absolutely. look, the first time personally the president acknowledged that, yes, they have -- we have evidence, the united states government -- evidence of chemical weapons being used in syria. but in a meeting and the oval office with the king of jordan he made that acknowledgment with a lot of caveats. take a listen. >> knowing that potentially chemical weapons have been used inside of syria doesn't tell us when they were used, how they were used, obtaining confirmation and strong evidence. all of those things we have to make sure we work on with the international community and we, ourselves, are going to focus on this. >> reporter: here's what sources are making clear to me. their intelligence, they believe, is spot on. they believe they know chemical weapons were used. they don't know who ordered it. did assad himself do it? is it a rogue agent? that's the evide
those chemical weapons. our chief white house correspondent, political director chuck todd, with us from the white house tonight with more on this chuck, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. well, the president was very careful in what he said about how he would enforce that red line. of course, the red line is if it is proven that the syrian regime used chemical weapons. here's what he said, and listen to the careful nuance. >> there are options that are available to me that are on the shelf right now that we have not depl deployed, and that's a spectrum of options. as early as last year, i asked the pentagon, our military, our intelligence officials to prepare for me what options might be available. >> reporter: the options that he's considering right now, there already is either indirect or nonlethal assistance to the syrian opposition that's going on right now, almost $500 million that's been spent in humanitarian aid in this nonlethal assistance. what the president could consider in the next few weeks is direct military assistant to those opposition groups, brian, that th
